an end to feral days

1 1/2 oz Avuá Amburana Aged Cachaça
1/2 oz Lustau East India Sherry
1/2 oz Amaro del Capo
1/2 oz Averna
2 dash Mole Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Two Wednesdays ago after my double shift, I met up with Andrea at West Bridge for a drink. The cocktail that I requested from bartender Chris Danforth was the An End to Feral Days. Chris described how this was his drink and how the cachaça aged in amburana wood gave an interesting spice and smoothness that made it easier for mixing in straight spirits drinks instead of needing to resort to the more common citrus-driven ones. Once mixed, the An End to Feral Days offered a funky grass aroma with dark herbal notes. A grape and caramel sip led into a funky grass and grape swallow with minty and herbal accents.
